Winterfest Flashback to 2013
“Passport to Paradise“
2013 brought an entry by Radio Disney Miami which hosted celebrity Caroline Sunshine from “Shake It Up.” JM Lexus powered the Grand Marshal Showboat and Moet & Chandon brought bubbles to the Black Tie Ball.
The parade’s theme “Passport to Paradise” created visions of destinations around the world while blending the tropical beauty of South Florida.
Grand Marshals were Ryan Hunter-Reay Indy champ and Fort Lauderdale native and comedian Tracy Morgan.
